Happy Saturday friends!
I took a break from the internet this week, first to celebrate #1 turning 19 (#2 and I traveled to Vancouver to visit him and had a wonderful 24 hours together). The rest of the week was spent working on indoor projects as it has been really wet out, and then, yesterday we awoke to snow. This is fine however as we have some exciting things coming and there is a list of things I want to get done in the house before gardening season really kicks off~
We are working on two painting jobs right now- one in #4′s room and one in the “dorm room”- the lowest floor in the house where #s 2 & 3 are. I am still contemplating what we will do with the spaces but have all sorts of ideas. However I want to get the paint up first as we are making some pretty dramatic changes with regards to color and I want to see it first to make sure our ideas will work.
I have also been working on some little projects- rewiring an existing lamp and making a new table lamp from an old vase. It was my first foray into creating lighting and I anticipate doing more of it in the future as it is wonderful to think that I can create any look that I want with some wire and a socket! I am already eyeing a few fixtures I dislike quite a bit…
Mr. Taylor is away for the next 8 days so in that time I plan to keep busy working on projects and, if the weather report is correct, getting outside in the sunshine. These lawns are in desperate need of a mowing and I still have spring pruning and weeding to get to. And the roofs need to be cleaned off as there are the last remaining leaves that are wreaking havoc on the drains!
Have you ever made soda bread? I want to try this.
I love making ricotta and this recipe for scones looks divine~
This makes me impatient to do our patio extension before summer.
I love an inspiring farm visit!
Have a wonderful weekend~
